I had a blast today with the Britt family. They are very dear friends of mine and it was such a pleasure to be able to capture some of their family moments! Here are a few I have finished editing. More to come!!

One of the first things I learned about photography is to always leave room around your subject (breathing room). I am guilty of not doing this from time to time. Sometimes I fail to get it right in-camera, and other times it is a PS crop issue. Luckily, if it is a PS crop issue it can easily be fixed by undoing your crop. However, if it is in camera, you don't really have a lot of options. That is what happened in this image of my kids.
I cropped too tightly on the left of my daughter's arm. I really liked this shot though and wanted to find a way to make it look a little better. First I increased the canvas size about 5 inches. Then, I grabbed another shot of them sitting in the same spot and merged a little bit of the open area from the other pic onto this one. I used the clone tool to blend the two and this is what I got.
It looks and feels much better to me. What do you all think?

I love having Friday's off because it gives me a chance to spend quality time with the kids. I took them to the park Friday for a McDonald's picnic and then we played on the equipment. I also got some shots of them on the nature walk! It was a great day!
